GENERAL INFORMATION ONLY – NOT FINANCIAL ADVICE

The information contained in this website is general information only. It does not constitute personal financial advice and should not be relied upon as such. It does not take into account any investors’ individual circumstances, financial objectives or needs and does not purport to provide comprehensive information about any matter.

An investment in any BetaShares Fund (‘Fund’) is subject to investment risk including possible delays in repayment and loss of income and principal invested. Neither BetaShares Capital Ltd (ACN 139 566 868 AFS License 341181) (“BetaShares”) nor BetaShares Holdings Pty Ltd guarantees the performance of any Fund or the repayment of capital or any particular rate of return. Past performance is not an indication of future performance. The information is not an invitation to enter into any legal agreement of any kind. No statement or information in this website constitutes a recommendation, offer or invitation to invest in any investments, securities or products of BetaShares.

Investors should obtain a PDS and professional financial advice

Before making an investment decision you should consider the product disclosure statement (‘PDS’) for the relevant BetaShares ETF with a financial advisor to determine if it is appropriate for your circumstances. You should also consult appropriate professional advisers on any legal, stamp duty, taxation and accounting implications of making an investment in a BetaShares ETF. The PDSs are available on this website.

Authorised Participants vs Other Investors

While all investors should consider the relevant BetaShares Fund PDS prior to investing, only investors who are authorised as trading participants under the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) Market Rules (‘Authorised Participants’) may invest through the relevant BetaShares PDS. Other investors may acquire units in BetaShares’ Funds on the ASX through a stockbroker, financial adviser or online broker.

Units may normally only be acquired and redeemed directly from a BetaShares Fund by persons called “Authorised Participants”. All other persons may acquire and dispose of units on the ASX via a stockbroker, financial adviser or online broker. Transaction costs (including brokerage fees or commissions) may be incurred when buying or selling units in a BetaShares Fund on the ASX. Units in a BetaShares Fund trade on ASX at market prices current at the time of trade, not, NAV or iNAV.

Exclusion of liability

The information on this website is provided in good faith and is believed by BetaShares to be accurate at the time of publication. However, the use of this website is at your sole risk. No company in the BetaShares Group, either personally or in their capacity as the trustee or responsible entity of any Funds, nor the directors and officers of BetaShares, make any representation or warranty as to the quality, accuracy, reliability, timeliness or completeness of any material on this website. Except in so far as liability under any statute cannot be excluded, BetaShares, its directors, employees and consultants do not accept any liability (whether arising in contract, tort, negligence or otherwise) for any error or omission in the material or for any loss or damage (whether direct, indirect, consequential or otherwise) suffered by the recipient of the information or any other person.

This information relates to certain BetaShares Funds quoted on the ASX. ASX takes no responsibility for the content in this website or any decision to invest in the Funds. The admission by ASX of BetaShares as an issuer of ASX-quoted Funds is not an endorsement by ASX of BetaShares or the quoted units in any BetaShares Fund.

Intraday Net Asset Value File (iNAV) disclaimer

The iNAV is calculated on a minute-by-minute basis by a third-party vendor (MarkIT) and is based on the market prices of the individual holdings included in the relevant index being tracked. The iNAV per unit does not constitute a bid-offer price. It is an indicative estimate only based on delayed intraday market prices obtained from the relevant exchange or market on which the relevant Fund’s assets are traded and are subject to change. The actual bid-offer prices for units in the fund are determined by market forces current at the time of any trade via the ASX.

Any iNAV should not be relied upon as being the price at which units may be bought or sold on the ASX, and may not reflect the true value of a unit. No assurance can be given that any iNAV will be published continuously, will be up to date or free from error.

The MarkIT information is provided to the users “as is.” Neither MarkIT nor BetaShares nor any of their affiliates make any express or implied warranties of any kind regarding the iNAV data, including, without limitation, any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or use. Neither MarkIT nor BetaShares not any of their affiliates guarantee the adequacy, accuracy, timeliness or completeness of the MarkIT iNAV data and to the extent permitted by law accept no liability to any person for any interruption, inaccuracy, error or omission, regardless of cause, in the iNAV data or for any damages (whether direct or indirect, consequential, punitive or exemplary) resulting from any use or reliance on the data. Prior to the execution of a security trade, you are advised to consult with your broker or other financial representative to verify pricing information.

We may as a result of your access to this website hold and process personal information obtained about you. BetaShares is committed to maintaining the privacy of any personal data it holds about you, and does so in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles contained in the Privacy Act 1988. Please read BetaShares’ Privacy Policy to understand how your personal information will be treated when you use this website.

Third party information and materials

BetaShares may from time to time publish information, articles and other material on this website that are written and prepared by third parties who are not employees or representatives of BetaShares. Such material is provided for your interest and convenience only. The source of any such material will be clearly identified as an independent third party and BetaShares does not accept any responsible for the contents or accuracy of any such material, and the opinions expressed in the material should not be taken as opinions or recommendations of BetaShares.

Those websites which fall into the second category are not affiliated with BetaShares in any way. BetaShares does not control or endorse and is not responsible for the contents of these linked third party websites, and provides hyperlinks to other websites for your convenience only.

Investment performance

Past performance of BetaShares’ Funds is not an indication of future performance. No company in the BetaShares Group guarantees the performance of any BetaShares Fund or the return of an investor’s capital or any specific rate of return. Total return shown for BetaShares’ Funds have been calculated using net asset per unit at the start and end of the specified period after taking into account all fees and costs and assuming reinvestment of distributions. No allowance has been made for any entry fees, exit fees or taxation, if applicable.

Prices

All figures and amounts displayed on this website are in Australian dollars unless otherwise stated. All asset values are historical figures based on our most recent valuations. Net asset values (NAVs) are based on closing prices from the previous trading day and are subject to change. As pricing frequencies and valuation methodologies differ for the various types of underlying assets, the asset values shown may not be current and, therefore, you shouldn’t rely on them as the basis for trading investments in your account.

The intraday NAV per unit also does not constitute the market price per unit. It is an indicative estimate only, generally based on intraday values and is subject to change.

Units in a BetaShares Fund trade on ASX at market price quoted on the ASX, not net asset value per unit. Transaction costs are incurred when buying or selling units in a BetaShares Fund on the ASX and brokerage commissions may also apply if such trades are done through a broker.
